BRAKE LIGHTS FAIL IF STEERING WHEEL IS LOWERED

Pontiac Other

I have a 2001 Trans Am w/97,000 miles. My brake lights quit working. I checked everything from bulbs to fuses, even replaced the swiitch. Then I noticed that if I didn't lower the steering wheel as I usually do the brake lights work. Any ideas why?

Thanks for any help, Delora

Sounds like a wire is shorting out somewhere or touching something.
